Hi folks ,
I thought this would be a fun topic to chat about. I put this notion to the test in a big way last night.
I shot all my CO2 replicas ranging from $140 pistols - $300 pistols, Blow Back Only. I shot them back to back with my G&G GTP Air soft and my lovely freak pistol ( KJWorks KP-07 ) that gets kicked out of the air soft skirmishes lol. It kicks out 25s as high as 400fps !?? Chronoed by Bad Lands. He was in shock lol. It never runs out of gas and shoots full power to the last dump mid 300s. It dumps it's gas to the last shot ?? Like wow. Ace tuned it. Lol , he sort of fixed it and it became this way by accident. Anyway I wanted to fully illustrate just how much better an Air Soft pistol is than it's counter part replica's.
I shot from seven yards out double taps to 4 steal rams and pigs. Two rams two pigs. Each spread apart 36 inches. The object is to hit each silhouette twice only with only 8 shots in the clip. Rams are rimfire 5" Silhouettes and pigs 4" rimfire silhouettes . But as fast as you can shoot all 4. I shoot from left to right and vice versa.
My results here were simple and boring. The Sig. KP-07 and the G&G GTP smoked them all by a 100% .
I shoot my 2 guns well but hardly no misses. The BB replicas were just not even functional at all, at the speed I was shooting the air Soft at. It's almost not fair. Because I love BB guns Pellet guns ... the whole business.
The next test was very simple too, accuracy to 11 yards out. I scored about 1/2" group with 3 shots only, my best try with the the more striker fire G&G Air soft pistol. The Beretta APX BB Replica was my sniper BB pistol I used for the Accuracy test. My very best was 1" group 11 yards. Standing free hand using Isometric Tension on the grip. " I suppose" executioners are never good teachers. Also the repeatability was 90% with Air Soft. It was 50% with the BB Replicas ... but fun : ) So , I thought it would be fun to start some discussion on this fun fact. Well, for me it's a fact.
Good night and try it it's fun. When you get good, you can time your self.

Did you try different BB's ? Only way to test accuracy is try different ammo and see what shoots the best. Because I could say my 22 is not accurate, and run the cheapest of cheap pellets.

Personally I would call the test inconclusive. Too many variables. I would like to see the test done with say 1911 Airsoft/1911 BB, Glock Airsoft/Glock BB ETC. Co2 also runs higher pressure than green gas/propane.. So the Co2 BB guns would have harder blow back. Making it have a bit more recoil. So the Airsoft would recover faster on target. That be like putting my 22LR up against my 9mm in a plate challenge. So I think only reason why the airsoft did better on the speed was the lower pressure of the green gas.

Because I could do an accuracy test with a Glock and 1911... And shoot the 1911 more accurately and say that more accurate. But someone could shoot the Glock more accurate. But a little more time I could shoot the Glock just as accurate.

I just see too many variables to call it fact.

I'm merely an Airgun plinker. I don't shoot 10m, FT or partake in Airgun competitions.

Hey Bud ,
how you doing. I agree I think it's not fair at all. I mentioned that because. I wish the BB Co2s were a bit more precise. But I shot 18 pistolas bud. At crazy power levels stock or other wise too much to chat about. I am a 1 finger man as I am now. This is taking me like 5 min. to wright lol. But anyway yes I did give the CO2 BB Blow Back Replicas a chance but like I said only my Beretta Striker effort took 1 inch from 11 yards. Pellets are not my thing for training guns .... way too expensive. we pay stupid money on ammo. Even for the rich. JSB H&N etc.

Many manufactures make both 6mm Air soft and 4.5 steel BB in the same pistol design.
I would like to see you do an target accuracy comparison, using NON BLOCKBACK pistols
of the same make and model.

For example Dan Wesson offers both. ... us-version ... 2%20Barrel

Then we would know which is more accurate to some degree, however I find that even if you buy two of the same pistols off the shelf
they don't always shoot the same...its like Guitars, no two exact same guitars sound alike.

Beretta M92
Bersa 9
TTI Combat Master 2011
Desert Eagle x2
Diana 24
Diana Chaser
Kimber 1911
M&P 40
Glock 17 G4
Sig P365
Sig X5
Sig M17
Walther 99C
Wesson 715
Schofield x2
